It was a week of wild and deeply unfortunate news. The recent events have only highlighted why a credibly neutral, permissionless network is of critical importance. While such systems might not completely solve the problem of collusion and greed, the elimination of intermediators certainly makes it harder for those pernicious behaviors to thrive.
With auspicious timing, the Gateway.fm team joined us for the Gnosis community call on Thursday. Gateway provides multi-chain, geographically-distributed enterprise infrastructure built for speed, scale and stability.
By offering a federated infrastructure, Gateway brings Gnosis one step closer to building the most resilient and unstoppable public blockchain available.
Curious about how everything has impacted Gnosis? Query the blockchain, fren. These boots are battle tested and our conviction has never been stronger.

🏔 of the Week
A few weekly tidbits highlighting regular goings on.
🏘 DAO of the Week: LabDAO
LabDAO enables sharing of open research tools among its community of scientists and engineers. This is done via LabExchange – a marketplace protocol enabling members within the community to exchange services with one another.
Their plan is to start with computational services and gradually expand to include all forms of research resources and wet labs.
By having resources and research on-chain, LabDAO indirectly bootstraps a knowledge graph. This establishes scientific provenance by letting researchers know if an experiment has been done before, learn about its results and reproduce it if needed. To learn more follow them on Twitter @lab_dao
Azuro’s Bet of the Week on bookmaker.XYZ
It’s time for the weekly check-in with Azuro Protocol and their first betting front-end, bookmaker.xyz.
Let’s head over to Italy for Serie A on the Lecce - Atalanta BC game. One of our savvy bettors put 50 xDAI on Lecce FC to win in Full-Time Result. He must have caught something the rest of us didn’t as he doubled down, increasing his bet size by another 50 xDAI. Of course, Lecce came out victorious, and at odds of 4.32/4.06, this bettor bagged himself a 423 xDAI win! Drinks are most definitely on him (And firm handshakes of course).
The World Cup kicks off next week on 20/11/2022. This is by far the biggest sporting event of the year. Stay tuned to our social media because finishing this year with a bang!
